Passionate Purpose

Today’s morning was filled with knowledge ready to be applied.  My overbearing brain was telling me to get up and so I did.  God has a plan for us but it is not always pleasant for us.  When we go through change we fill loss and pain of some degree. But with pain we also grow through Jesus Christ.  We become more Christ-like and sharpen God’s purpose for us.  Our purpose in life is something we are most passionate about when it is used to Glorify God.

Where you are today is where God wants you to be.  You only need to be still and listen for his instruction.  Know that God loves you and he will never leave you.  Live each day to the fullest and be in the moment.  Make Goals each day and tackle the more important and difficult tasks first.  Make a checklist for your daily routine and goals and at the end of the day you will be filled with God’s love and peace.  You get one gift of life on this earth so don’t waste it.  Thank our Lord Jesus Christ for his sacrifice, serve, and love others as he loves us.

Having a daily devotional time with the Lord and reading his word is where you will find your purpose.  One of my favorite inspirational books for defining, and growing in your purpose is a book called “A Purpose Driven Life” by Rick Warren.   This book helped me sharpen my passions to glorify God and live more for him and less for me.  If you read these books you will find the answers you are seeking.

Man of His Word

The beauty of Jesus and our Father is that they are man of their word.  God says, “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” (Jeremiah 29:11)  God is the father  and Jesus is the son both whom work as one with the holy spirit.  The desires of our hearts as we walk the righteous path will be set before us in God’s time.  The man God has made for me will see me as I see him in the right moment at the right time.  God’s hand is molding him as he is molding me.  His hands are sweet, firm, and attentive but patient is his plans.   

Although the journey has made me weary I rely on Jesus as God’s strength, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. (Matthew 11:28-29) 

To the Man of His Word:

I will see you as you see me;

I will hear you as you hear me.

I will love you as you love me;

I will adore you as you adore me,

and as God leads you and loves you;

he will lead me and love me as I follow you.

Isaiah 40:29-31

He gives power to the weak
and strength to the powerless.
Even youths will become weak and tired,
and young men will fall in exhaustion.
But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength.
They will soar high on wings like eagles.
They will run and not grow weary.
They will walk and not faint.
